I can see that still having some problems with diode like the 44 with it's widely divergent fast axis, with the lens set into the barrel half way I could see the fast axis being a little clipped by the barrel before the fast axis part of the beam got to the lens ?I have been asking Poco about having the manufacturer set the G7 lens into the barrel a few mm. Great lens but not optimum implementation. Having the lens halfway into the lens barrel would allow it to be used on the red diodes as well.
The reason I think that is because even with the lens at the very end of the barrel the lens has to be very far away (screwed way out) from the diode before it will begin to focus and at that distance I believe the fast axis of the 44 is already wider then the lens barrel it's self so either way the fast axis of the 44 will more than likely be clipped to some degree if used with a G7 lens ?
